“Wonderful Experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

After our experience at the Super 8 in Belle Fourche that same evening, we took off and started looking for another place to stay for the night in town and saw Econo Lodge. Afraid that the place might be another dump, my husband kindly asked the lady at the front desk if we could take a peak inside their room to decide whether or not we are staying. The kind lady let us in and showed us a really nice and clean room. We told her the reason why we needed to see the room first and she understood our situation. She told me that the building was recently renovated, which explains why it looks clean inside. Nothing fancy, but nice and clean. Perfect for a night stay. The sheets were clean and comfortable. We appreciate what she had done for us and we decided to stay for the night. Great price. They have an indoor pool for those who want to know or have kids. They have limited breakfast like waffles, cereals, juices, and coffee. They also have an elevator to get to the second floor, which we were staying. They have washer and drier. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and are thankful to the lady who worked at the front desk that day. I wish I knew her name, but I left a little message at the desk the next morning letting her know we are thankful for what she did. :)

I took a summer road trip that included 25 hotels so I am rating each hotel to pay it forward to others for helping me chose my hotels. I am a choice hotel Platinium member for years. This hotel rates a 'D-'. No issues with the bikers and their fun, that was our mistake to pick that weekend. Apparently anytime near first couple of weeks of August you will pay more then double the cost for the same room. Basic room, for econo ok... Price in August is nightmare, if you are reserving for another time it is fine..

Reasonable for the price..except during bike week. Nice shower, clean bath and accommodating manager, pet friendly. Newly carpeted. Worth a repeat visit but breakfast could improve with very limited fare available. Nice proximity to restaurants.

Nice property, Great price, Limited breakfast. Close to Mt Rushmore without the high prices of hotels there. Hopefully Trip Advisor will get the message and change the brand of the hotel from Motel 6 to EconoLodge.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms close to the elevator are near washer/dryer and drink machine. A bit of distance do...

This is the 2nd time staying here, and the Motel 6 is now EconoLodge. It was as clean as the first time--bathroom was pristine white. Employees were very friendly. With the transition to EconoLodge, breakfast has been added but it is the standard economy-chain fare: if you want to get fat and carbs, better to at least get some taste with it, so opt to pay a little at a fast food place instead. The pillows, bed, and sheets weren't comfortable. Overall, this is a good economy place to stay for a night.

Very nice and very clean. The staff was very nice also. All in all one of the nicest motel 6 we've ever stayed in. And that's a lot we're in a semi truck and stay all around the United States. First time I felt like I could take shoes off and felt good about it.

We chose this location based on other Trip Advisor reviews and were very happy with our stay. This is a newer location with large rooms...in fact, I don't believe I have ever been to a Motel 6 with rooms this large before. The entire location was clean and in good repair, the room was very clean and equipped with a flat screen tv, nice bedding, a refrigerator and microwave. The staff was friendly and helpful. We travel quite a bit, and it is always nice to have a place where we feel comfortable.
